07:30:04 <Michelle> Here comes the sun
07:32:35 <Michelle> Down basin steam is much more dramatic, I guess!:)
07:33:04 <JarnoO> Once Lion ends its series, as it currently stands it most likely won't have another series until tomorrow morning, assuming a best-case scenario of 24h between series end and series start. At its worst it'll be tomorrow afternoon
07:34:59 <Michelle> If only we could see it!
07:36:23 <JarnoO> It has also shown to have a long-term memory, so even if that series will have one or two eruptions, the subsequent series end-series start interval will most likely be in the order of 24-30h
07:38:28 <Michelle> :thumbsup:
07:44:23 <JarnoO> For illustration, Lion showed similar behavior in 2009 (scroll to about two-thirds of this file): http://web.archive.org/web/20101217173219/http://gosa.org/geysers/LION/eruptions/Lion%20eruptions%20for%202009.txt
07:47:48 <Michelle> Interesting. Thank you

08:06:16 <JarnoO> If this becomes something akin to 2009, Depression might become quite frequent, too. In 2009 there were changes in activity from North Goggle to Depression
08:13:03 <Michelle> :lion:
08:13:58 <Michelle> 8:12 start
08:21:05 <JarnoO> Next Lion at 0921±5m assuming series continues. 4m01s
08:21:33 <JarnoO> at least OF is cooperating to some degree
08:22:29 <JarnoO> Couldn't tell from the overnight captures if Castle minored or majored, though I'm inclined to say it minored
08:26:53 <Michelle> Going to move my legs real quick before OF comes around. brb

11:39:20 <Dave from B™> Kevin, how old do you have to be for NPS lifetime pass?
11:39:33 <9> 62
11:39:45 <9> not Kevin, yet I know that answer
11:40:51 <Dave from B™> Thanks, 9. Turning 60 next month.
11:41:03 <9> a few more years to go...
11:41:15 <9> you can join AARP though...
11:41:31 <Dave from B™> Hitting 2 new national parks in April: Great Basin and Death Valley.
11:41:42 <9> you might get some camping discounts through them
11:42:20 <9> so you will get good use from an annual pass this year if you are also doing Yellowstone
11:43:40 <Dave from B™> Yes, we always have one. May be going to Grand Tetons as well this year
11:44:42 <9> do you get camping spots at Great Basin and Death Valley through recreation.gov?
11:46:07 <Dave from B™> I just reserved a cave tour. We will be boondocking on blm land during our SLC to Death Valley portion. We are staying at Furnace Creek which we booked thru recreation.gov.
11:46:37 <9> hope you have decent weather
11:47:03 <Dave from B™> We try to average under $40/night for camping on our trips. With 5 nights in San Diego over 90 and 6 nights on the california cost at 70 means lots of free nights to and from.
11:47:51 <9> is that another trip or this trip?
11:48:03 <9> do you go from Death Valley to San Diego?
11:48:16 <Dave from B™> The April trip...21 nights
11:48:41 <9> how far up the coast will you go?
11:49:18 <9> will this be the new van's first journey?
11:50:02 <Dave from B™> Yes, first time out for Hugo 2.0
11:50:22 <Dave from B™> We are staying at Dana Point and Soputh Carlsbad...only doing Dana Point to San Diego
11:50:43 <9> not sure where that is
11:50:57 <Dave from B™> We will pass thru Joshua Tree (2nd time) and Vegas on the way home
11:51:26 <Dave from B™> Dana Point is just south of Newport and Laguna Beach south of LA
11:51:41 <9> thanks, so staying far south
11:51:49 <Dave from B™> Touts itself as whalewatching capital of the US
11:52:11 <9> fun, let's hope that is true. Even in April??
11:52:55 <Dave from B™> And, the highest per capita dolphin area in the us
11:53:55 <9> just googled it, sounds like grey whales and humpbacks might be around, that would be great to see
11:54:22 <Dave from B™> Yeah. I will sign up for trip tonight
11:55:16 <Dave from B™> Only other major trip this year is to go to Oregon (including visiting Becca). Planning to focus on Redwood NP to Florence coastal area plus MT St Helens and Columbia River Gorge.
11:55:30 <Dave from B™> 23 n ights
11:57:32 <9> when is grand baby due?
11:57:46 <9> you'll be home for that I would guess
11:57:51 <Dave from B™> May 15...that is why only 1 trip in the Spring
11:58:06 <Dave from B™> Parker also does graduation walk on April 29
11:58:44 <9> so less than a month until Hugo departs!
11:59:24 <9> wow, guess a squall is in the basin
11:59:43 <9> might not see Grand unless it passes, though cam has not moved since I have come on
12:00:12 <Dave from B™> With the cold we have had, we still aren't up to speed on all the changes. Also, having some battery and water pump issues that we are trying to work thru.
12:00:51 <9> hope you get them taken care of in the next few weeks.
12:00:56 <9> Wonder where cam op is
12:02:08 <9> looks nice at West Gate, so hopefully only a squall
12:03:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If you can make it the Midway museum in San Diego is great.
12:04:55 <Dave from B™> Kevin, it is on the list along with a return to the main zoo and the wild animal park.

12:28:56 <Dave from B™> Sounds like a ghost town
12:30:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes it is. Just a couple miles out of Beatty. Death Valley Nut and Candy Company in Beatty is good too.

16:33:42 <CalebD> Hi Korben
16:33:49 <KorbenC> CalebD, hi
16:36:05 <CalebD> Little Cub
16:56:50 <kc (working)> first griz of 2023 observed today per ynp twitter
17:00:27 <linda> wow blue sky
17:01:40 <linda> howdy all
17:01:55 <Greg 🤠> Howdy back at ya
17:02:12 <linda> Greg 🤠, :)
17:06:45 <Greg 🤠> KC, I was just going to post that about the griz, sighted in Pelican Valley.
17:07:18 <Greg 🤠> 300-350 pounds, on/near a bison carcass.
17:07:25 <linda> well our chipmunks are out here LOL
17:08:13 <Greg 🤠> Our ground guys can stay sleeping yet.
17:08:41 <linda> I love it out by Pelican Valley
17:09:25 <Greg 🤠> OF time
17:09:30 <Greg 🤠> OF
17:20:37 <CalebD> Nice light
17:23:53 <CalebD> Greg 🤠, Could you zoom in on sawmill for me?
17:24:01 <CalebD> I want to see it in this nice light
17:24:43 <CalebD> Nevrmind already done
17:28:15 <CalebD> I think we are in for a good sunset
17:41:08 <CalebD> Little Cub
17:43:16 <9> Grand did go during BH watch. I had a feeling it was going to.
17:44:03 <9> I asked for a peek over, yet I do get how ops are reluctant to leave BH once indy is on so they will not miss the start
17:46:28 <KorbenC> Unofrunnately actively erupting geyser > maybe erupting geyser unless OF is in window, then that takes priority. If it was up to me we would always be on Beehive :P
17:46:57 <Greg 🤠> One could always do this for a sec or wo, then go back.
17:47:06 <CalebD> KorbenC, :p
17:47:18 <KorbenC> Hi Greg, good to see you :)
17:47:29 <Greg 🤠> Hi Korben, you two
17:48:10 <9> I would always pick BH over Grand on the cam, just wanted a quick look
17:48:26 <CalebD> :thumbsup:
17:49:14 <CalebD> Hard choice for me, but would probably go with beehive
17:50:18 <KorbenC> both are good, but we can see Beehive alot better and it goes alot less
17:50:36 <linda> nice view
17:50:42 <CalebD> :thumbsup:
17:51:15 <linda> been snowing for so long forgot what blue skies look like
17:51:44 <KorbenC> linda, lol, hi

17:51:58 <Greg 🤠> or great visibility
17:52:10 <linda> yeah
18:01:44 <9> might get chilly in the basin this evening
18:04:32 <Greg 🤠> 9, -5 to -8 tonight

19:17:23 <Kevin iPad> Mine is fine
19:17:35 <CalebD> Same but will watch for it
19:18:11 <KorbenC> Must be my computer or internet, cause my camera has black frames every few seconds which is weird
19:18:29 <CalebD> KorbenC, Odd
19:18:40 <CalebD> That has never happend to me before
19:18:49 <CalebD> Maybe try restarting?
19:19:05 <KorbenC> CalebD, I did, idk, it'll go away eventually
